They said it couldn’t be done. And quite honestly, maybe it shouldn’t have. But, leftovers are the mother of all inventions. If you got it – use it. And in the wake of the super popular Jalapeno POP Burger, I submit to you, the Jalapeno POP Pizza! Another very naughty, indulgent
recipe idea. Have fun! I’d love to know how you change this and make it your own. Amounts of the ingredients are up to you…
Ingredients for Jalapeno POP Pizza:
chopped red bell pepper
chopped red onion
fresh tomato slices
marinara sauce (optional)
monterey jack, jalapeno jack or mozzarella cheese
avocado slices (optional)
Original Pizza Dough
Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
TIPS: Making pizza is all about balance. Keep ingredients in proportion and your pizza will be harmoniously delicious. That said, the more cornmeal on this crust the better. Think corn chippy goodness baked into the crust.
Follow recipe for Pizza Dough to make the crust. Roll to desired
thickness thinness and spread on softened cream cheese (thinned with a little milk if needed). Distribute jalapeno (and as many seeds as you can handle), red bell pepper and red onion on cream cheese layer.
Add fresh sliced tomato, a few dollops of marinara and a sprinkling of shredded cheese of your choice. Bake in a preheated, 450(F) oven for about 12 minutes.
Top with bacon pieces when the pizza is hot from the oven, that way, the bacon will be affixed to the pizza courtesy of the hot, melting cheese. Add the avocado slices just before serving. Devour. And send me pictures of your fun and crazy pizza concoctions!
